The P67A-GD65 scored in the middle of the pack in 3DMark11 and 3DMark Vantage testing, but again we noticed the margin of victory for the ASRock P67 Professional was quite small and insignificant. All three of these boards posted good frame rates in Metro 2033 and Just Cause 2, which indicated all three were more than adequate to handle today’s latest first-person shooters in DX10 and DX11.
